Melanie is a mental health professional with special focus on third-party fertility. She is a counselor, educator and advocate for all people pursuing family formation through reproductive services.
"When my husband and I came to the fertility clinic 14 years ago, non-traditional families were looked at as non-viable options for a healthy family environment for children. Melanie saw past those existing biases and advocated for us to be parents. As a gay couple who desperately wanted kids, Melanie's support and guidance were invaluable. Our girls are now 13 and we know they would not be here without Melanie’s persistent advocacy for our family."
– Matt, Patient

"I've had the pleasure of working with Melanie Mikkelsen in the care of infertility patients since 2012. Melanie taught me so much about how to care for our clientele in my role as a Fertility Nurse, and I now have the pleasure of collaborating with her regularly to ensure Embryo Donation clients are well taken care of. She is diligent, thorough, and thoughtful in her approach. Melanie's unique perspective along with her decades of experience make her an incredible asset to this field, her colleagues, and the patients we serve."
